Diwali, the festival of lights, is a Hindu festival that celebrates the power of light over darkness which signifies the strength of good over evil. It is considered to be the most beautiful festival in India and Nepal both as houses and streets are all lit up with beautiful lights.
In India, the entire country appears like a perfect setting to a fairy tale. Firecrackers are also used during Diwali, which has led to many mishaps in the past and has been a major cause of pollution during the season. However, Diwali is celebrated with much zest with family and friends every year.
